Posted on 10/02/2013 8:45:42 AM PDT by originalbuckeye
Just heard on the radio that the WH may be directly responsible for the closing and barricading of the open air National Monuments. Inquiries to the Dept of the Interior, etc, were intentionally vague.
Shouldn’t McConnell be over at the Mall helping to explain why Zer0 has to “Tear This Wall Down!”?
According to Stephen Hayes its been confirmed.
McConnell will probably be going to the white house with Boehner.
The Republicans have been dealt a strong hand, and the upcoming debt ceiling will make it even stronger. They need to ‘manage the message’ and stand firm. They can actually win this battle IMO.
Saul Lewinsky tactic.
Does a monkey hurl banana peels?
Barry wants as much FRICTION as possible..evidently
They will try to help him?
I’ve spoken with people who were rickets for hours at Cruz’s speech who asked me yesterday why is Ted Cruz shutting down the government like this?
Who’s going to get out front? Boehner? How? By leaking via email that he loves obamacare and is working hard behind the scenes to exempt his staff from it?
We’ll be lucky if the MSM doesn’t find a WWII vet storming the barricade shaking his fist in rage against Ted Cruz for making things bad for our beloved Obama
Were ALL the open-air memorials shut down and surrounded by fences? (Wash, Lincoln, Korean War, Viet Nam Wall, etc?!?!?!?!)
What if they don’t want to win?
“The Republicans have been dealt a strong hand, and the upcoming debt ceiling will make it even stronger. They need to manage the message and stand firm. They can actually win this battle IMO.”
since the msm will vilify the gop no matter what, I still can’t figure out why they would worry about how they are potrayed.
JOHN HAS A LONG MUSTACHE

That's a great idea, and you point out one of the Republicans' biggest weaknesses--they don't take advantage of good PR to advance their agenda.
They should be on EVERY camera and on EVERY network. They need to explain...in detail...why they are doing what they are doing and how the Obama administration is violating the law by giving out exemptions and changing the time-lines.
And they have also backed themselves into a corner: They can't fold now because it will be the dems who are pointing out that all of this was for nothing.
They are not making the case to the American people. They aren't out there saying that they are just doing what the American people want because most hate this law. They also need to be out there describing to EVERYONE...and addressing Harry Reid...about the Tea Party...and explain that they do not want NO government...but they want LIMITED FEDERAL government (WHICH IS A CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT) and more responsibility at the state and local level. They need to make it clear that the only true anarchists out there are OWS...and that the true anarchists are lefties.
They're blowing it.
We will find out very soon if that’s the case. The Tea Party will oust the lot of them.
And dealt a strong hand in this game, the Republican leadership folds once again.
How Bonehead and the Turtle became Republican Party leadership is hard to imagine.
I'll never forget that we once gave them control of the House, the Senate, the Presidency and a majority on the Supreme court. And what did they do with that immense power?
Nothing! Divested themselves of it as quickly as they could.
What about that MLK is he closed too?
The barricades, the email leaks. Harry and Barry are playing with fire and they know how to
Of course the WH is responsible. The narcissist is just throwing one of his tantrums.
I don’t think the masses understand the significance of this, so the majority say, “Of course they’re closed, the govt is shut down.”
These are open-air memorials open 24/7 without full time park ranger presence. At least the Lincoln Memorial. All these tweets do no good if this isn’t brought to the public’s attention.
The goonies have shut a great deal down..
Costs more to barricade than to keep open?
lol. The MSM won't allow that
That’s like locking the gate to the baseball stadium on purpose so the kids can’t play ball. Another in a endless series of manipulations by THE FOREIGNER and his ANTI AMERICAN REGIME showing how he feels about the COLONISTS U.S.
Hey, just because I think the federal government is in excess of 95% of being unconstitutional and that we ought to abolish any agency that isn't (a) directly permitted by the Constitution, or (b) investigates/enforces crimes specified by the Constitution does not mean I'm an anarchist.
Sure, we'd be left with a federal government consisting pretty much only of the following:
DAMN THE BARRY-CADES, FULL STEAM AHEAD!
they can talk all they want, and they have been, but the snippets are not being played by the MSM... they are covering the Prez only, in regards to 1 liners I’m hearing on TV and radio..
Prez has entire MSM media behind him..most people aren’t even paying attention, other than these snappy little one lines coming from Reid and Zero.
I work with 80 people and most are just spewing talking points from what they are hearing.
I was thinking: How sad is it that this man is so clueless. Must be a union member.
And how is that accomplished when every network is carrying water for Obama?
Becuase of the shutdown, OMB went out and erected Barry-cades, and exempted Park police so they could patrol to keep people away from a free outdoor memorial. Backfired.
and now Barry threatens to veto Parks and Vets legislations because he hates old people and vets and parks.
The reflecting pool filters are off? Ooooooh, that’s going still soon.
The question MUST be asked, “where did the government get funding to erect the barricades which never existed before, and patrol these monuments to ensure they’re ‘sequestered?’”
Are Barky & the leftists going to shut down the Interstate highways system? How about “Federal Express,” after all, it has the word “federal” in the name?
I can tell you how....and here it is: Every camera in the world was waiting for the Speaker and Reid/Pelosi to come out and speak after the meeting at the White House. Boehner had PRIME TIME COVERAGE...and he wrapped it up in a minute or two...not really leveling any damaging charge except they won't negotiate. Then Reid/Pelosi did a TAG team for 10 minutes. They roasted the GOP with lies.
Now...you and I get it...but for the average American out there, the dems just got 10+ minutes of prime time filibuster. Boehner could have done that. He could have explained ALL of this in a nice 10 minute speech...and could have spoken so long that the average American would have turned it off...WHICH WOULD HAVE LED TO THEM NOT HEARING PELOSI/REID.
But NO. He played nice....talked for a minute...then let the dems slam him for 10. That's NOT how its accomplished. He had prime time...uncensored coverage....and HE WALKED AWAY FROM IT.
I saw the replays. Boehner’s short sweet reply sounded factual and professional while Dingy and the Shrew looked unhinged trying to spin this thing their way. Know why the left is trying so hard to spin this? They know nothing will happen just like the sequester.
Just saw a replay.,,
Boehner “I would hope that my friends on the left would listen to the American people and sit down and have serious discussions on ending this.
Reid “One thing we made clear, we will absolutely not move on Obamacare.”
He didn't. And you must remember, you are looking at this with your bias and you see it a certain way and that's why the dems look unhinged. This is where the GOP fails. They forget you have to frame the debate for the low income voter....and to do that takes time.
This was a BIGTIME missed opportunity. Yeah...you get it cause you are following the discussion...but the average idiot out there needs to be lead to a decision.
Yeah....LOL...sure. Keep on thinking that....and expect the average American out there to get it.
You are giving WAY to much credit to the LIV's out there...the same people who put Obama back in office...and that's our mistake: We think that THEY think like us. They don't.
Well I think the flaw in their position is their “We will not negotiate.”
Since brevity is the soul of wit, I think Boehner hit it just right. He hit them for refusing to compromise, which is what people want.
Reid and Pelosi looked like two cats trying to scramble onto a rowboat with all the spin. Reid actually said he would not compromise.
We just see it different. Tomorrow will tell.
And what I am saying is he had a prime time opportunity to lay out the reason for this...and explain it. He should have explained why they were doing this...the exact impacts of Obummercare...and exactly why its important.
Look...I'm a preacher. I know that only a few things that I say will actually go home with the congregation. That's why I repeat them...so they will stick. When dealing with the public...you have to reiterate your points. You aren't lecturing a bunch of college students who are expected to take notes and review.
